Joseph Mallord William Turner Sandycombe Lodge, Twickenham: An Unexecuted Elevation and Plan c.1809-11

Joseph Mallord William Turner 1775–1851
Folio 83 Verso:
Sandycombe Lodge, Twickenham: An Unexecuted Elevation and Plan circa 1809–11
D08077
Turner Bequest CXIV 83a
Pencil on white wove paper, 87 x 117 mm
 
Accepted by the nation as part of the Turner Bequest 1856
This is one of a series of sketches relating to Sandycombe Lodge, Turner’s self-designed Twickenham house (see the Introduction to the sketchbook), occupying most of the pages between folio 73 verso (D08057) and folio 86 verso (D08083), and apparently made working inwards from the back of the book.
The present studies show the broad, shallow ‘Type B’ type categorised by Patrick Youngblood (as discussed in the Introduction to the Sandycombe section); a related design, with a classicising Palladian facade emphasising the central bay on the garden front is on folio 79 verso (D08069),1 while a similar plan is in the Sandycombe and Yorkshire sketchbook (Tate D08967; Turner Bequest CXXVII 3).2
